God of War's blooper reel is full of delightful bugs

God of War's blooper reel is full of delightful bugs

Sometimes it's hard to see all the blood, sweat and tears that go into a game once all the polish had been completed.

Thankfully, Sony Santa Monica has released a hilarious blooper reel for their smash hit God of War, and it's jam-packed full of bugs.

Highlights include one-armed Kratos, Hellraiser Atreus, and a statue blasting off into space (likely because his people need him.)

It's so great to get a peek behind the scenes into issues that likely had developers tearing their hair out in frustration. Thankfully they can laugh about it now, right?

Dust off the holy water, Priest Simulator coming in 2019

Dust off the holy water, Priest Simulator coming in 2019

Simulation games have seen massive poularity over the last few years. We've had everything from Farming Simulator to the more outlandish Goat Simulator and now, we'll be able to step in to the shoes of a man of the cloth.

Ultimate Games has announced Priest Simulator, an FPP (First Person Priester) in which players will take on the role of a town priest, helping fellow townfolks with everything from Sunday service to exorcisms.

One of the creators, MichaƂ Jod goes on to say “Life is the art of selecting the lesser evil. Such will also be the case in our game, where we will solve problems in different ways or not solve them at all. If a resident asks us for help, then, of course, we will be able to help that person but the game will also offer alternatives less beneficial for the needy. We’ll kill the devil and receive from the client an envelope with a reward or we allow the demon to depart and we obtain an ability associated with black magic. The decisions will be reflected in the reputation indicator and we invest the money in developing the parish, car upgrades and better weapons”

Days Gone delayed to avoid "crowded February"

In an update on its PlayStation Blog, Sony has confirmed that Days Gone has been delayed.

Sony noted that the move was made to avoid the "crowded February timeframe", and confirmed that Sony Bend's open-world Zombie action title will now release on April 26.

Before its move, Days Gone was set to release on the same day as EA's shared-world shooter Anthem, and first-person action title, Metro: Exodus.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rumoured to ship on 2 discs

Red Dead Redemption 2 rumoured to ship on 2 discs

If a leaked game cover is to be believed, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be shipping on two discs.

I haven't seen any other instances of this generation's console titles needing more than one disc, thanks mostly to the use of dual-layer Blu-ray discs on both Xbox and PlayStation.

Each disc can hold up to 50GB of data, which has been more than enough so far, but Red Dead's need for 105GB of HDD space seems to have killed that streak.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is only one week away from it's October 26th launch. After what feels like years of waiting we finally have a launch trailer to add fuel to the blazing hype fire.

The new trailer, while not as long as the previous two, does a great job of introducing players to some of the world and characters many of us will likely end up spending hundreds of hours with.

Check out the trailer below!

RDR 2 has been in the news a lot recently, with rumors of the game shipping on two discs, a massive install size and the blowout from incorrect reports of one hundred hour work weeks for some of the staff at Rockstar.

Sean Bean is ready to die yet again in Hitman 2

Sean Bean is ready to die yet again in Hitman 2

IO Interactive and Warner Bros. have pulled back the curtain on the first Elusive Target for the upcoming Hitman 2, and it's an actor that everyone seems to love to kill. Sean Bean will star as disgraced MI5 agent, turned assassin for hire, Mark Faba.

In a humorous bit of self-awareness, Bean's character aka "The Undying", is seen chatting to a suspiciously hairless therapist. Faba states "I never expected to be like this, but they keep trying to kill me, you know? I've cheated death countless times. I'm like a stage magician. I know all the tricks. They think they're clever, but they've got nothing on me. I even managed to make them think I'd been blown up."

During the trailer, Faba boasts about how he's managed to elude death and is quite the seasoned killer himself. He goes on to show how he can use everyday items to dispatch his victims, like a toy robot flash bang, an explosive pen and a pair of curiously strong headphones. Players will be able to vote on which of these weapons will turn up in the game for them to use on unsuspecting targets.

CoD physical sales continue to decline with Black Ops 4

While Activision might be celebrating a new record in Day One digital sales for the Call of Duty franchise, physical sales have dropped significantly.

According to sales data from the UK chart – and analysis by Eurogamer – Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has sold 50 percent fewer physical copies than last year's WW2. Meanwhile sales are also down 59 percent from Black Ops 3.

Physical sales for Call of Duty have been on the decline for quite some time. Seeing an all-time high with Modern Warfare 3 in 2011, the only uptick was seen in with WW2's release.
